The annual event attracted a record-breaking crowd and raised money to benefit nursing at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Guests enjoyed a sneak preview of the more than 700 cars on display and nibbled on a buffet dinner. Later in the evening, they headed to the grand ballroom to enjoy dessert and dance to tunes by Philly party band, Jellyroll. 

The Philadelphia Auto Show runs from Jan. 27 through Feb. 4, 2018.
